This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive.

Nelson says that some problems are minor, like a mere oil change, and wouldn't it be better to fix those...

Nelson says that first of all, remember that open source software is not pixie dust, and is not going to solve all software problems. But, open source does let people inspect the code and debug it, so open...
